  • Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC)
    Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC)
    Jeff Wouters - MVP Windows PowerShell Recorded: Jun 12 2014 44 mins
    To fix a configuration that drifted from the desired state. This is the description of Windows PowerShell PowerShell Desired State Configuration.
    Who doesn’t know the long search for the cause when something stopped working? Two identical servers, where one works and one does not.
    You can solve this by standardization and compliancy enforcement of that standard. DSC is all about that.
    You define a state you want the configuration to be in and hold this against a server or client. If it isn’t compliant with the desired state, it will get fixed.
    This is the future of management in Windows environments.
    During this webinar, Jeff will show both how DSC can be used for compliancy enforcement, but also as a deployment solution.

    Bio: Jeff Wouters, MVP Windows PowerShell, is a freelance consultant and trainer from The Netherlands with a main focus on automation and virtualization.
    He has a passion for Windows PowerShell, is the founder of the Dutch PowerShell User Group (DuPSUG) and frequent speaker at national and international IT events such as BriForum, E2E Virtualization Conference, Microsoft TechDays and multiple User Groups.

  • App Store Optimisation across the Android and Apple app stores.
    App Store Optimisation across the Android and Apple app stores.
    David Copeland Recorded: Feb 27 2014 58 mins
    With over 1,000,000 apps in Apple's app store alone, getting your app seen amongst all the competing apps is an increasingly important and specialist activity, even apps that don't compete with you on a product level compete in search results. Forrester research shows that over 63% of apps are discovered through organic app store search alone, and over 75% of apps are downloaded with no prior knowledge of the app's existence. Smart Phone and Tablet search behaviours are changing, we've seen a 6% year on year decline in Google Search via mobile, but a staggering 1,000%+ increase in app store browsing. Big brands can no longer rely on customers searching for them by brand, customers increasingly use app stores to search for products like Linen as opposed to the retailers like John Lewis who might supply them. This webinar seeks to introduce you to the key challenges, and how they can be overcome by focussing on getting the best out of the app store ecosystem.
  • There's No Security Without Infrastructure Security
    There's No Security Without Infrastructure Security
    Zal Azmi, CEO, Nexus Solutions Recorded: Feb 19 2014 41 mins
    Over the last few years the issues with cybersecurity have created this impression that cyber is a virtual world that has no end to it. What people fail to realize is that there is still a physical computer network and automation infrastructure under this virtual world. It is the security of this infrastructure that provides for secure transaction of the financial data, sharing of sensitive data, and mission critical information.

    One of the best approaches to securing the cyber domain in addition to training people and establishing policies is the security of the cyber domain through the implementation of an enterprise asset management discipline. Knowing what assets the enterprise has and what it is being used for provides a high level of situational awareness that is needed to protect the cyber domain.

    Join cyberscurity veteran Zal Azmi for this interactive presentation, with decades of experience as CIO of the United States Attorney and the FBI, there's not a lot he doesn't know about your infrastructure.
  • Physical Network Infrastructure: The Latest Methods and Technologies
    Physical Network Infrastructure: The Latest Methods and Technologies
    David Cuthbertson, Square Mile Systems & Bob Camerino, ITS Engineering Recorded: Feb 19 2014 38 mins
    Connectivity requirements of the latest LAN/SAN devices are forcing changes in the way physical infrastructure is designed and implemented from traditional structured cabling. New technologies such as PON, TORS, pre-term and modular systems are giving data center and network managers new flexibility in the way they plan and deploy the physical layer.

    Join David Cuthbertson and Bob Camerino for this webinar where they will cover these new developments and their impact on network infrastructure planning and management.

    Making A Move To Mobile
    Christopher Marsh from AKQA Recorded: Jan 16 2014 54 mins
    Thinking about creating a startup? Looking to progress your career? Enthusiastic about expanding your technical skills? Whichever it is, mobile development offers huge opportunities for developers. This talk will consider the three essential areas that will enable you to make a success of mobile development. First, when to develop a native app, and when to stick with a mobile web experience. Second, which platforms to use, and how to use them. And third, using tools to run your mobile programme smoothly and effectively.

    Berliner Flughafen - Hätte SCRUM das Desaster verhindert?
    Sevin Ulukut Recorded: Dec 5 2013 48 mins
    Das Projekt Berliner Flughafen ist ein jedem in Deutschland geläufiges Beispiel eines fehlgeleiteten Großprojektes mit immensen finanziellen Schäden und Reputationsverlust. Das Webinar geht auf die Frage ein, ob agile Methoden ein derartig katastrophales Scheitern von Projekten verhindern können. Werden Releasestrategien helfen, Projekte zu festigen und Risiken frühzeitig zu erkennen? Das Webinar untersucht insbesondere den Einfluss von Change Requests und beleuchtet Techniken, deren terminliche und finanzielle Auswirkungen mit agiler Vorgehensweise zu begrenzen.
  • The Smith Chart
    The Smith Chart
    Bill Williamson Recorded: Sep 19 2013 32 mins
    The Smith chart, invented by Phillip H. Smith (1905–1987), is a graphical designed for electrical and electronics engineers specializing in radio frequency (RF) engineering to assist in solving problems with transmission lines and matching circuits. An article appeared in the January, 1939 issue of Electronics that changed forever the way radio engineers think about transmission lines. Phil Smith devised an extraordinarily clever circular chart that revealed graphically the complex impedance anywhere along a line.
    This webinar is designed to introduce young RF engineers who may never have heard of the Smith chart to its immense power. We all use it unknowingly every day when because it is built in to so many systems that we do not even know it is there.
    The chart is simply the unit circle of the complex plane representing the generalized reflection coefficient. The contours representing constant real and imaginary line impedances are overlaid . Thus, the chart can be used to directly determine the normalized line impedance at any position of the transmission line as well as the reflection coefficient. The chart is also a unit’s converter. No mathematics are needed because all quantities are simply determined graphically. So ingenious was his invention that it has been the standard of the industry - for nearly sixty years.
    I am going to show you just how simple it is to design a balun to match a transmission line to an antenna.

    PLEASE NOTE: Please be sure to leave your correct email address when registering as you will be sent a copy of The Smith Chart for this exercise. You will also need a pencil, 12" ruler and compass/divider.

    I hope you enjoy the exercise.
